washington state's third congressional district. i would like to begin by saying on behalf of the people i represent, that we are thinking of the people of japan and praying for them as they continue to deal with the devastation following last week's earthquake and tsunami. i have only been in congress for two months now, but i like to think of my job as being just for washington. rising costs of gas and health care, and other challenges, are keeping small business owners struggling while at the same time they wonder what kind of that tax hike the government will hand down to them next. an army of lobbyists is trying to block any effort to reduce our 14 trillion dollar debt. they are also creating regulation after regulation and breeding more fear and uncertainty. as a result, our economy is not producing enough jobs. it is struggling. i want to get all of the overspending and overregulation out of the way so that the country we know and love can prosper. right now, the new house majority is hard at work on eliminating regulatory barriers to job creation. earlier this month, the house vote

'd rather draw a line in the sand than agree to cut another dime in spending at a time when washington is spending about $4 billion more every day -- every single day -- than it is taking in. republicans have been hopeful that we could make progress and reach a bipartisan solution on this issue. so it's my hope that the assistant majority leader was speaking for him sieved and not for his entire side. this of course is the debate that most people in washington will continue to be focused on this week. and it's an important debate. but focusing on day-to-day expenses threatens to obscure an even larger threat, and here i'm talking of course of entitlement programs like social security, exphair medicare, and medicaid. anyone who has looked at these programs closely knows they're becoming unaffordable. that doing nothing risks not only the future of these programs ourselves, but our nation's future as well. anyone who looks at history also knows that the best time to address a crisis like this is a time like right now, when two parties share power in washington. this is the time, mr. pres
